While it's rare that it would be that close, when prospects are on the same level, the order of tiebreakers should go like this IMO:

1. Need (This team needs LWs and stay at home defensemen more than it needs PMDs)

2. Toughness

3. Size

4. Local factor (Quebec of course, but even more so from Montreal and the surrounding suburbs is a bigger deal for me)

5. There ability to speak French and "character" bonus (they overcame a difficult childhood, once saved orphans from a burning building, etc)

6. Other

Having local players is a good thing, so yes, it's worth consideration. I think we will almost certainly get a few Quebecois players out of this draft, but it's not a factor in every pick.
Agreed...though I believe there are many on this board that need to be reminded that
there is an ABOVE AVERAGE crop of Q players that need to be strongly considered...
Drouin, Dauphin, Morin, Poirier, Gauthier, Carrier, Erne, MacKinnon, Carrier, Fucale,
